REVIEW ~ The Year That Changed Everything by Cathy Kelly

With HUGE thanks to Elaine Egan, Hachette Ireland and Orion Publishing, I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review..............

Three women are celebrating their milestone birthdays.......30. 40. 50. But as they're going to discover their birthdays marks the start of a year that will change everything.

Ginger isn't spending her 30th the way she would have planned. Tonight might be the first night of the rest of her life - or a total disaster.

Sam is finally pregnant after years of trying. When her waters break on the morning of her 40th birthday, she panics: forget labour, how is she going to be a mother?

Callie is celebrating her 50th at a big party in her Dublin home. Then a knock at the door from the police mid-party turns her perfect life upside down......

I absolutely adored this book, ashamedly I've to admit that it's the first time that I've read a book by Cathy Kelly but It definitely won't be my last.  It was warm and emotive and I warmed to every one of the three women who were celebrating their birthdays.  I really loved Ginger as she reminded me a little of me and her storyline at the start of the book but I'm not going to spoil it.  The only thing I would've liked is if Callie's husband, Jason's story had have been expanded a little on perhaps why he did what he did but that's only a little minor thing.

The Year That Changed Everything is a feelgood, uplifting and emotional novel about family, friends and how far we must go at times before admitting defeat and need them to step in and help out.  What I really enjoyed is that all three women's stories come together by the end of the book and proves that we all do need our girlfriends in our lives.


The Year That Changed Everything is available from all good bookshops, libraries and on Kindle where it is currently £5.99 at the time of publication of this review.
